The Oatley-family owned supermaxi crossed the finish line in Hobart at 9.48pm (11.48pm NZ Time) on Wednesday - about 16 minutes ahead of LDV Comanche - to slash nearly five hours off the time set by Perpetual LOYAL a year ago. A protest from Comanche following an incident as the fleet left Sydney Heads could yet see Wild Oats XI's victory withdrawn. To break Perpetual Loyal's 2016 race record of one day, 13 hours, 31 minutes and 20 seconds, the first boat must be in before 0231 tomorrow.

He played eight seasons in the AHL before getting a chance in the National Hockey League.
